  • Good cables doen't have to be expensive

    posted by Kangerm00se on 05:37:29 G5T 18/05/2014 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very cheap for a 5m USB extension cable but it does the job perfectly.

    Cons: At the end of the cable there is a rather thick part that is required to get the power-boost. This makes it more difficult to get the cable into a plastic cable tray. This is however a problem with all 5m USB cables so it's not a problem specific to this cable.

    Other: I'm using this cable to get the receiver of my wireless keyboard of the home theater pc much closer by. This has saved me a lot of frustration!

    Pros: Boost what I need! works fine! Has a good quality and endurance! Strong enough for daily use. usb with good plug, quality plug, light wight booster.

    Cons: Hard to coil. The cable get memory too fast! If you do not know how to coil correctly it will be a mess. You must take care of the cable like a guitar cable. It may brake with no caution.

    Other: So far, so good! worth the money and worth the try. Good use in my PS3. Good use with my camera Canon T2i. Fast and easy.

  • A working usb extender

    posted by Python1320 on 11:00:48 G1T 08/01/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It provides enough power and indeed has a chip in the black box which repeats the usb data and makes it operate over longer cables. You can basically have 10 meters with this if you have 5 of cable on the other side of the black box in the cable!

    Cons: The plastic cover breaks easily. (definitely doesnt handle stepping on it) Probably can't be used outdoors since the repeater is not water tight, but nowhere does it say you could :)

    Other: If you need usb extension this is what you want.

    posted by Karrashin on 07:47:33 G12T 29/12/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Product does exactly what it should do. I bought this extension cable to use with my keyboard, which does it's job perfectly. I also tried using it to connect an usb key, also no problems. You can't expect the same speeds as when you directly insert the usb key in your computers usb port, but still works!

    Cons: No cons to speak of after a month of use.

    Other: Very good and capable product. If you are looking for something like this, I urge you to buy this product! Very nice!

  • 5M USB Power-Boost Extension Cable

    posted by BogdanMorgun on 03:37:00 G9T 19/09/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: LONG, this is the longest length you can have USB devices plugged in. The price is right, EXACT same cable goes around here for 5X as much making this an excellent buy if you need lengthy USB cable that actually works.

    Cons: Seems slower than a standard cable straight to USB, so I wouldn't use it for things that require actual speed, like USB wireless sticks or external hard drives. Other than that, it's good for everything else.

    Other: Get this if you need extra long USB cable.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Just plug and play. I did not have much confidence in the product but it works very well! Use it with multiple devices (cameras, wifi card, sound card, printers ..) No need to worry about cable length. Every device that connects operate smoothly (usb 1 and 2). It's a great option for USB wifi card and that can be installed near the antenna on the outside and connect using this cable to the pc.

    Cons: No cons.

    Other: Recommended product. It is always good to have, you never know when you may need.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: - Has worked fine for months. I use it to connect a corded mouse to a computer that's on the other side of the room. - Affordable. I can't even get a non-powered cable at local stores for this price. - The female connector is tight enough to hold a dangling cable, but loose enough to disconnect with ease when I accidentally nudge it with my foot.

    Cons: - The plastic cover came off, but it was easy to put back together. I used scotch tape.

    Other: As said, I've used it for months and had no problems with it. Should I need another extension cable, I would buy this one.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: - Good build quality
    - Shield cable
    - USB 2.0 compliant, copy from my usb-flash shows at least 18 MiB/s

    Cons: - It overheats and turns off when connecting my working Huawey E1550 GPRS modem. Well, that modem has problems with passive extenders also.
    - It overheats and turns off when connecting wireless receiver from my Oclick 404MW optical mouse.

    Other: Works with not any USB device.
    Maybe I received a defective item.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Easy to use - Plug and Play hassle free.
    Cheap (can't find one for cheaper anywhere else!)
    Pretty reliable so far. (we used it in an interactive art installation overseas for a conference where we needed a webcam that had to be mounted quite far away from the computer, and it did the job very well!)

    Cons: Did not notice any. Worked flawlessly.

    Other: if you need to extend a USB device over a long distance, this will do the job very well!
    would definitely buy again if i need a USB extension.
